COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hop Notch. Wonderful complex flavos, like no other, simply a great tasting IPA. It’s balanced, strong malt backbone, citrusy nose, with hints of pine and grass.

Solid IPA that was bit more on orange-citrus side than the spicy side. Orange-colored with floral hop nose. The taste was well balanced - strong citrus with grass and bread in there too. easy to drink. Very passable IPA.

Part of a tasting at crowns and corks. Smooth easy a bit too malty for an ipa. Overall ok beer but could be a bit more bitter.

The aroma is fairly subtle and not overwhelming for an IPA. Appearance is nothing special--rather light in color. Great taste with the typical hoppy flavor that isn’t too much. Crisp finish--drink up!

12 oz bottle: Just a sip right out of the bottle: need to retaste this to really rank it, but wanted it in my database. Nice hop profile iwth citrus, spruce and herbal notes present. Smooth drinking and finish. Would LOVE to drink this more.

12ox bottle from a six pack that cost me $7.99. Clear orange color, creamy head, good lacing. Smells like caramel and orange rind, not bad at all. Flavor is hoppy, citrus orange rind but has a pretty good malt backing to it. Overall, not bad and a good value but I am s biased towards west coast IPA’s.

Dark and cloudy orange pour from bottle at Gsp. Sticky head. Mild and subtle aroma. Very dry and bitter, tons of hops which I love. Dominated by that. Can't complain! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Orange with nice white head. Smells citrusy. Tastes crisp, citrusy, good balance, lingering resinous finish. A good beer.
